4ALL Statewide Service Day
*The number to call will be posted here Thursday, March 2, 2017.
Sound legal advice can impact and change lives for the better. But most people in need of services hesitate to call a law firm, afraid that it will cost a small fortune to talk with an attorney. Each March, the North Carolina Bar Association provides a solution, giving people a place to turn for trusted answers and guidance. Through the 2017 4ALL Statewide Service Day, North Carolina residents can call to receive free legal advice from hundreds of lawyers committed to helping those who cannot afford legal services.
What is the 4ALL Statewide Service Day?
On March 3, 2017, almost 500 other lawyers from firms across the state, will volunteer their time from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., taking calls from the public to answer a wide variety of legal questions. This year will mark the tenth annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day sponsored by the North Carolina Bar Association.
Our own managing attorney, Janet Ward Black, originally initiated 4ALL when she served as President of the North Carolina Bar Association. What began as a program focused on providing quality, free legal services to those in need is now used as a model across the U.S. and Canada. Thousands of people at or below the poverty line have been positively impacted through 4ALL.
